Daylight Savings Monologue- Funny or Not?

14 Nov

I realize that comedians take different approaches on delivering a good, entertaining show. However, was Pete Holmes taking it a bit too far? I think yes. I’m not usually one to get offended easily at all, but c’mon that’s the best thing you could come up with to laugh about…

 

I’m sure he wasn’t intentionally trying to say farmers are worthless idiots, but he sure did depict them as being something like it. I just think this is one of those things he should have thought about more in depth before he went live and hurt a lot of people’s feelings.

Your goal may be to get a good laugh out of people, but should you risk offending thousands all for a joke? The whole reason I came across this video was because it was brought up in one of my classes and several people were bothered by it. Just saying, think before you act (or speak in this case)!

    I totally agree with you! I did a post on the same thing: http://lipstickandtractors.wordpress.com/2013/11/06/daylight-savings-time-the-world-catered-to-farmers/. Obviously, he was just trying to be funny, and probably has nothing to do with writing the skits. But still I agree this was taken too far. Maybe a one-liner joke would be acceptable not an all out ‘roast’. Especially you know because farmers basically feed the world, no big deal. 🙂

      Yep exactly!! Sometimes people take things a little to far for a “joke”.
